Designed for Security: Introducing Software Encryption at Rest

There’s been a lot of buzz around the recent launch of version 3.1 of Rubrik Cloud Data Management. As our 7th product release, this version introduces a variety of rich new features to our platform that help make data management even more comprehensive. In previous posts, we discussed Rubrik Envision, which delivers visual data for platform analytics, and support for physical Windows servers. Version 3.1 also bolsters our security capabilities by adding software encryption for data at rest. The update is available on the r300 appliances, which ship with a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip. Rubrik already supports hardware-based encryption on r528 appliances. So, now customers can enable data-at-rest encryption across Rubrik appliances, as well as role-based access control, to protect their data. Here are some of the key benefits our software encryption feature delivers: Comprehensive Protection We use AES 256-bit encryption to protect all of the data associated with your Rubrik cluster.

Rubrik -  - Using Automation to Validate Applications and Services in Rubrik Backups

Using Automation to Validate Applications and Services in Rubrik Backups

The ability to restore files, folders, applications, and entire servers is the ultimate goal of data protection. With that in mind, there are a lot of checks in place to validate that all source data has been correctly stored within the Rubrik Cloud Data Management (CDM) fabric. This includes CRCs to ward against corruption, over-the-wire encryption to prevent tampering, and the use of erasure coding to opportunistically place data across hardware components to avoid single points of failure. In addition, it’s a good idea to validate that a backup can be restored. The best method is to perform a restore of the data to ensure that whatever is required – be it files, folders, applications, or entire servers – can be presented back to the users. Traditionally, this has been clunky. Solutions that offer such workflows are often quite slow to complete and limited in scope. Plus, they operate in a closed-source orchestration engine that is tightly coupled to the solution itself. Wouldn’t it be great if you could perform backup validation using your existing configuration management engines instead? With Rubrik, validating is easy. Because the entire CDM fabric is designed to operate at scale across any on-premises or cloud…

Create your own SLA policies by selecting desired snapshot capture frequency, retention duration, and data policy (store on-site, to a central site, or in the cloud). It takes just a simple swipe to…
Rubrik -  - Security 101: What Security Really Means For Data Management

Security 101: What Security Really Means For Data Management

Data security is not a new priority for enterprises. In earlier blog posts, we discussed the rising threat of ransomware and how a next-gen data management solution prevented a ransomware attack. Given the exponential growth of data and increasing trend in data breaches, it is imperatives that businesses apply the highest security standards to all their data. However, the concept of security is often confounded in the context of data management. To clarify the important terms, components, and their implications for data security within enterprise backup and recovery, I sat down with Adam Goldberg, who leads product development for Rubrik’s security solutions. Adam comes from a security background with previous experience at the Department of Defense.Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) FIPS 140-2 is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules. It is often a requirement for a product to be installed in a location where sensitive data is stored. The FIPS 140-2 standard extends far beyond the federal government. For example, financial and healthcare institutions collect, store, and transfer highly sensitive information that needs to be secured. While FIPS 140-2 features four levels of security, only Level…
